Irresistibly Sweet

Yesterday I received the sweetest blog award from Saronai:

sweet-award

She said: “Looks alone make this site irresistible to me.  Even if the posts were uninteresting, I could just admire the eye-grabbing layout cradling the finer, more fanciful header.  I also enjoy her muse theory.”

Aww, thanks so much! I’m glad someone enjoys my layout as much as I do.

I am to share seven random facts about myself, and then pass the award along to five blogging friends.

Randomness About Me

  1. I love keys. Ever since reading The Golden Key, I have been fascinated by them. Especially key necklaces. I used to have a simple key on a chain with a Yin-Yan pendant. One of my favorite necklaces  now is a Steampunk key (gift from my awesome husband) from Keyper’s Cove, seen here.
  2. I am a plotter. I usually have to have at least a vague idea of a scene before I start writing it. I have one chapter written of a book that isn’t plotted AT ALL. And it scares me and fascinates me at the same time.
  3. I currently have 300 Friends on Facebook. Most of them are fellow Dragon, a secret society in The Secret World, an upcoming MMO which I am super excited for. We are preparing for The Secret War which should be coming to Facebook soon. (Choose your faction now!)
  4. Thanks to Netflix streaming on Xbox Live, I have watched 50 episodes of Charmed in seven weeks.
  5. I started writing poetry in fifth grade. I have written well over 200 poems.
  6. I have seven different email accounts.
  7. I have a phone phobia. My mind goes blank whenever I’m on the phone. I can never remember the things I was supposed to ask, or info to pass along. Yay for an era of email, blogs, Facebook, and texts!

And This Award Goes To…

The top five sites I find irresistible (in no particular order):

  1. Liana Brooks – I’m always learning something fascinating about science and how things work. LOVED her series on The Truth behind Lust (and Love!).
  2. Nikki – Always amazed at how much she manages to get done with 7 kids and a husband in the military! She shares her challenges and provides helpful household tips.
  3. The Steampunk Home – I love Steampunk, the aesthetics, the genre, the clothes. This blog feeds my appetite with pictures and links of household items that fit that Steampunk vibe.
  4. Epbot – Jen is always sharing wonderfully geeky things. Her skills at do-it-yourself projects are envious!
  5. Alina – Love, love her whimsical header. And her posts are totally relatable as a fellow introvert writer and mom.
